About Natalie

I have twenty years experience teaching Russian, French and Portuguese to college students and intelligence personnel at Georgetown U., George Mason U. And Defense Intelligence Agency.
Since 2005, Russian and Portuguese training of foreign service officers and State Department diplomats on their way to Russia, Brazil, or lusophone countries in Africa for service assignments.

I am currently teaching for Berlitz, preparing State Department diplomat for FSI exam before relocation to U.S. Embassy in Brazil. And I have an effective approach that relies on contextual mastery of language, rather than standard grammar memorization.

I believe that motivation and interest are maximized when students want to express selves on subjects of interest to them. And students start speaking on first day. Within a week, they are able to describe selves, their interests, family, etc. By the end of a course, they have been able to discuss their jobs, politics, the economy, describe computer experiences, anything they are interested in.
